Nikki Porter Interview Excerpt
Carly: Tell us about your book The Conscious Communicator: The Pursuit of Joy and Human Connection Inspired by the Art of Horsemanship.
Nikki: I have passion for connecting with people. The book opens an honest and vulnerable conversation about the importance of clear and mindful communication in achieving healthy relationships and a happy life. In The Conscious Communicator, I use my experience with horses to add insight to where miscommunications, unnecessary drama, and frustration originate.
I discuss concepts used to train horses which focus on conscious, clear, and compassionate communication and apply them to all relationships. With a mix of research and honest, personal perspective, I encourage you to become more conscious of your communication with others by shining the light inward and allowing you to change your approach and perspective when interacting with people in all facets of life. It's important to become conscious of your thoughts and emotions in order to take responsibility for how you communicate daily.
The Conscious Communicator offers exercises that determine your communication strengths and weaknesses. It reminds you to live a life true to yourself by creating healthy boundaries and letting go of what doesn’t serve your growth and happiness. Along with the encouragement to become more mindful, I reassure you this isn’t a quest for perfection where you’ll never encounter an argument again, it’s a pursuit of creating and maintaining relationships which bring joy.
Carly: You are an equestrian mindset coach. Talk to us about your work.
Nikki: Having a better connection with your horse or your spouse, feeling confident to swing a leg over or have a tough conversation, trusting that you know what to do, and can handle the situation, having a horse (or husband, ha) who listens to you… and SO much more. It all STARTS with you.
When you become honest with yourself and make powerful shifts in your mindset you will see those shifts ripple into all areas of your life, your thoughts, feelings, communication, and abundance. This is why this learning is more than just about our horsemanship, it’s about pinnacle success in all areas of life. Especially the ones no one else really knows that you are struggling with.
I help my clients transform their mindset to become the connected, present, confident and fearless leaders they were meant to be in and out of the arena. My programs empower others and help them shift from being led by fear and doubt to leading their horse and life with a powerful presence and unshakeable confidence.
